Cleaning up our state since November 2018, Containers for Change aims to increase recycling rates and reduce litter by allowing Queenslanders to exchange eligible drink containers to either earn a 10-cent refund for each container returned or donate the proceeds of those refunds to their nominated community group.

Since launch, more than 6.4 billion containers have been returned across Queensland through our network of refund points across the state, delivering $640 million back in refunds to residents, community groups, charities and businesses.

Containers for Change has created more than 800 jobs across Queensland and helped reduce beverage container litter by more than 50%.

Businesses are making the most of Containers for Change and taking advantage of the social, environmental and economic benefits the scheme offers with many choosing to collect containers from their venues and sites to benefit local causes.

Hi, We’re Newbook. We empower you to find more freedom and take control of your operations with our connected hospitality management system. Partnering with you to drive growth, streamline your day-to-day and provide memorable guest experiences is what we do – we’re experts!

We’ve heard that you love your job, because you love hospitality. (Not because you love paperwork and administration.)

Newbook is so much more than a powerful, easy-to-use property management system and booking engine.

We’re the team that’s got your back, with state-of-the-art solutions for the daily challenges that hold you back from being the best hospitality provider you can be. We start with continuous innovation and improvements to the system — so that you are using the most effective, modern version of the old ‘reservations book’ with a ‘new book’ that does everything you need.

We know it’s not easy, because we’ve been there. We have a long history in hospitality, with creators who did exactly what you do — managing bookings, guest check-ins, maintenance, guest communications, housekeeping and all the everyday things that must happen before you can do the special things that really make a difference. The things that make someone’s stay an occasion they will never forget. An experience people will travel for. Good times they will talk about. The holiday of a lifetime. The front desk team member who saved the day. The manager who made them feel at home. A warm welcome. A longing to return.

That’s why we’re in this business. Over 55,000 users trust us as their software partner and we’re ready to partner with you too.
